Good morning, friends.
Good (early) morning. Since we started following a more "formal" homeschool-like rhythm this week I've been unable to sleep past 5:00, regardless of what time I fall asleep. I'm up before the chickens (a feat in itself) out in the silvery moonlight, awaiting the sun's arrival over the trees.
It's like the first day of school jitters, but as a mama. I'm not clear on what my body and brain thinks needs attending so early, but as a morning person I can roll with it. It's a rare slice of quiet before we begin the work of this life, together.
And so, a good day to you, whatever time you begin.
I have so enjoyed the conversations here on the blog as well as on my guest post yesterday on Simple Homeschool. Such a lovely and thought-provoking conversation about children, parents, and the paths we choose.
And so we begin a new day.
A fresh start.
May you have many blessings to count as you embark on your day. There is homemade chai in my cup which never ceases to make me happy. I'm hedging this morning a bit with nettle, raspberry leaf, rooibos, and black tea, but that's how I roll at 5 am.
And now? I hear the chickens requesting their breakfast. Time to start the day.
May yours - and ours - be blessed.
